Re: Askamgate Investigation Report

I agree with the bans, for the spamming and other offences, but is it really a racial slur? Everything I can find seems to be a no, really, but if someone could enlighten me on its origins I would be appreciative. That's what we started calling it. It may not be a racial slur, but it was a derogato...

Current Aerobatic Teams SOUND OFF

If you lead an aerobatic team, reply to this post with some information about your team, similar to the following quoted text. Preferably quote this post, copy out VNAF Aerobati...

Re: YSFlight Videos

I was poking around on YouTube looking for YS videos and came across two channels that have uploaded reviews/"first look"s of the game. If you wonder what an "outsider" to the community thinks of YS, check these out. This first one is a pretty in-depth review, going over the basic features of the ga...

Re: Hi Im Askam,

This topic was locked due to posts by Varren and TheJuli spamming the word "MANDINGO" hundreds of times. Those posts have since been deleted by the staff. We are investigating this incident to determine appropriate consequences. Note that this topic was temporarily moved to an administrative forum w...

Re: Restoring Privacy at YSFHQ

Question, which I'm sure the answers are yes to: Are our passwords on HQ / TS etc. all stored MD5 hashed and not plain text? IIRC phpBB3 has its own hashing system as default. Correct. Passwords are NOT stored in plaintext, they are hashed using modern hashing algorithms (better than MD5). Thanks a...

Restoring Privacy at YSFHQ

Dear YSFHQ, Many of you have heard about recent events involving the staff, specifically where Varren read private messages of users without their permission - if not, the facts of the case are available. My job has been YSFHQ "Mechanic", in charge of ensuring the site and our tech infrastructure st...

Re: [PACK] HAVA Aircraft Pack 4.4

The download link does not work. It takes me to mediafire and tells me the file is gone. Well that's silly, I thought Mediafire gave me the correct link. Re-pasted it and tested it works.

Let's Play: YSFlight

I was reading about YouTube's new "YouTube Gaming" website/app, meant to be a competitor to Twitch.tv, and I thought, how come we haven't had a livestream of our own yet? It would be a good way to get people introduced to YS and all the fun parts of the game. For those who haven't heard of YouTube G...

I have no idea what version this post originally was for, but since someone asked for the HAVA pack I have reuploaded version 4.4 that was previously on YSUpload and updated the download link in the original post (old one was broken). Enjoy!

Re: New Forum Theme [BETA]

Whoops, I just realized that signatures do look different! Apparently this new theme has changed the opacity to 70% which I didn't notice at first. Fixed that.

I also brought back a couple quick reply options now that the background to them isn't also grey.

Notice how both Patrick's and my signatures are really grey. It's not just our sigs though, it's everyones. :?
Oh, then we're seeing the same thing. I think that's a really light grey, personally. What do other people think about this color?

Addon request template?

For modders to be able to easily make an addon, it helps to have a standard set of information available in the request. To increase the chances of addons being made (or discovered) I think we should create a post template for anyone requesting a new addon. In addition, we should select one or more ...
